Here’s some new walker models for DUST Tactics from Fantasy Flight Games… but don’t listen to me, here what they have to say…
With the Allied forces heralding formidable units into the fray, Axis players will want to expand their armies to include a walker with multiple cannons for a broad range attack or a laser cannon to target Allied squads. The Light Panzer Walker expansion includes one primed, unpainted body that can be customized to build either Heinrich or Hermann with the included weapon attachments, both offering advantages for any Axis general to bring onto the battlefield.
With one of the most deadly weapon systems seen since the beginning of the war, the Panzer AufkclarerLaufer 1-A, aka “Heinrich” can crush an entire squad, whether or not it’s equipped with heavy armor. Heinrich’s incredible firepower derives from its four powerful FlaKvierling cannons. The Panzer AufkclarerLaufer 1-A is also versatile enough to use against lightly armored targets or engage enemies from a great distance, due to it being a light and agile vehicle.
The Axis’ newest light footed anti-tank robot, Hermann, elicits the same uneasiness in your opponent as Heinrich. With a revolutionary laser cannon Hermann can easily destroy targets much heavier than itself. Entering into a long engagement? Partner Hermann with your other Axis units, like a Recon Grenadiers squad, to both protect it and utilize it for a lengthy battle. If you’re looking to annihilate your opponent early in the game, find Hermann a secure position and use its sustained fire to waste any Allied armored unit.
An Allied general, desiring glory on the battlefield for himself and his nation, must bring the best of the best to the front lines. The newest Dust Tactics Light Assault Walker, either Wildfire or Honey, provides players with a multitude of advantages. The Light Assault Walker expansion features one primed, unpainted Allied walker, with two attachments to create either the fearsome Wildfire or the nimble Honey.
Created by Allied scientists, Wildfire’s dreadful weapon system will be a match for any Axis weaponry. The four heavy machine guns that top this light-weight robot fire simultaneously, delivering a deluge of firepower that lights up the darkest battlefield. Axis infantry and light vehicles will fall under the cloud of bullets that Wildfire strikes them with again and again. Eager for a speedy offensive? Use this Light Assault Walker’s high mobility and incredible agility to take a careless enemy by surprise.
There is nothing sweet about Honey except for its name. With a new next-generation phaser weapon system, this anti-tank is ready to erase your enemy from the board. With its superior system that can even engage heavy targets, Honey is an ideal vanguard of any Allied offensive. Want to blast your enemy with synchronized attacks? Honey was made to cooperate with other Allied troops, like Recon Rangers. Unify the strike by using Honey to attack the armored targets, while you have other Allied units fight against the Axis infantry.
With exciting and incredible abilities, these new walker expansions will blast energy into your Dust Tactics experience. Check back for more information about these exciting new walkers for Dust Tactics, and get ready to take the offensive!
Just right for those Weird World War 2 games.
